Need opinions on the mods?!?!

Hey guys,

Last week I ordered an alpine white / fox red e92 m3 with competition package and I am going to put some aftermarket parts once i get the car. Here is the mods i am looking to purchase:

Arkym front lip
Arkym diffuser
Paint the ZCP rims to glossy black
Paint match reflector

Should i get paint match front kidney grill and side gills OR glossy black front kidney grill and side gills? I can't decide which color will look better.

Thanks

I'd get them in black, contrast between black and white on the car looks nice. There's probably a few cars with similar mods and color combo in the forum. AW/FR is probably the most popular combination here so search for some pics and see what you like

I have the M3 Edition grills/gills but the more I see it I'm starting to really like matching colour.

359Ms in anthracite would be my choice otherwise satin black!

Most Alpine white m3 has black front kidney grill, and rarely see any with color matched grill. I want to risk it and get the color match front grill but i am afraid it will look weird.

Any one got pics of alpine white with color match kidney grill?

I'd do the wheels satin black over gloss. But I'm not a fan of glossy wheels to begin with.

I reckon you should consider a replacement front bumber with integrated lip instead of the Arkym + painted reflectors. I just think it would look better.
